A Pro-Life Libertarian Looks At Foreign Policy - With Guest Gary Heavin

Our imperialist foreign policy is doing us nothing but harm. So says today's Liberty Report guest Gary Heavin. And Heavin should know: he's an extraordinarily successful international businessman and one of the most impactful philanthropists of our time. When Haiti was devastated by a hurricane, he fired up his own jets and personally went down to help. But he is no fan of the neocon foreign policy of bombs away on any country that does not heed Washington's demands. And he is no fan of neocon meddling -- which results in such idiocies as the creation of ISIS as a proxy army to depose Syrian president Assad. Join today's very special episode with this incredibly clear-headed success story who has leveraged his good fortune to the betterment of others...

Trump Shifts On Syria, Russia - Neocons Go Nuts!

Over the past week, President Trump has twice emphatically stated that he intends to remove US troops from Syria and bring them home "where they belong." He also defied his advisors by congratulating Russian President Vladimir Putin on his election victory and suggested a summit meeting at the White House. The neocons have spent the last week furiously attacking these two moves, accusing him of undermining the policies of his advisors. Strangely, they don't seem to remember that it is the elected president who makes foreign policy, not his/her advisors. Will Trump actually defy the neocons and follow through with these two policy shifts...or will he flip-flop? Join us for today's Liberty Report...

F-35 Boondoggle: More Military Spending Is Not More Security

President Trump's huge military spending increase is based on a false premise: that more money means more security. If anything, the debacle of the F-35 fighter should demonstrate that massive military spending with no real purpose not only does not deliver more security but in fact undermines our security. A bigger military budget does not make us safer. It makes defense contractors and the revolving-door Pentagon officials much richer while emboldening the kinds of interventionist foreign policy that actually makes us more hated and thus vulnerable to attack.

Lawrence Wilkerson: John Bolton Is One of the Most Dangerous Americans I Have Ever Met

Lawrence Wilkerson, a former United States Army colonel and chief of staff for Secretary of State Colin Powell, made clear, at the beginning of a new The Real News interview, his concern about President Donald Trump appointing John Bolton as the president’s national security advisor. “I would agree that John Bolton is one of the most dangerous Americans — and I use that term loosely in regard to John because of his affiliation so closely with Israel — that I have ever met in all my 40, 50 years of service,” declared Wilkerson to host Sharmini Peries. Indeed, Wilkerson states in the interview that Bolton “is the very last person on the face of this Earth” Trump should have chosen for the position.

Trump Expels Russians - Poison Attack Or False Flag?

President Trump has expelled 60 Russian diplomats from the US over UK government claims that Russia was behind the recent alleged attack on a former Russian spy in the UK. The Russians have asked for some evidence they were behind the alleged attack. London refused. What's behind Trump's decision to back up UK Prime Minister Theresa May in her allegations?

The Skripal Case: It Looks Like Mrs May Has Some Explaining to Do!

On Monday 12th March, the Prime Minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Theresa May, stood up in Parliament and made the following claim as part of her 36-hour ultimatum to the Russian Federation:
“Mr Speaker, this morning I chaired a meeting of the National Security Council in which we considered the information so far available. As is normal, the Council was updated on the assessment and intelligence picture, as well as the state of the investigation.

It is now clear that Mr Skripal and his daughter were poisoned with a military-grade nerve agent of a type developed by Russia. This is part of a group of nerve agents known as ‘Novichok’.

Based on the positive identification of this chemical agent by world-leading experts at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory at Porton Down; our knowledge that Russia has previously produced this agent and would still be capable of doing so; Russia’s record of conducting state-sponsored assassinations; and our assessment that Russia views some defectors as legitimate targets for assassinations; the Government has concluded that it is highly likely that Russia was responsible for the act against Sergei and Yulia Skripal [my emphasis].”
In her statement to the House on 14th March, she reiterated the claim, as follows...
